this is how we're all gonna look like if a catastrophe like that takes place...
you've obviously worked a lot with the details (though I suspect it would normally be too bright to even see the end coming). the details you mentioned were a very clever addition (especially the sock-when someone notices it, they'll become more concerned about the lost sock, as if they'd live another day) what I would like to see different is the position of the kid's arms, like over his head trying to protect himself

I know I'd look like that, snot and everything, hahahaha.
With the kid, I was going for a pose of pure vulnerability. Some kids when they think they've been left alone (like when your mother used to say if you don't move along she's going to leave you behind in the supermarket?) they hug themselves, sit down and just start bawling it out. Because this kid is older I just had him clutch at his PJs. He is confronting a horrible spectacle with no comforting adult figure nearby, he must feel hell of alone. Problem is I darkened it too much, you can't see the wrinkles in his PJs to tell that he is clutching at them, holding on to them for comfort. I should have realized that with such darkening it wouldn't be too visible, a better silhouette (like holding his arms above his head like you suggested) would have read better.

It's true I didn't see the wrinkles. So that makes a lot of sense now

It is sad :(  . What's your favorite part? (I had a lot of fun adding silly details, like the boogey bubble, or the falling sock, the waving clothes to the kid's right, or the glint from the broken glass far off into the distance).
